UPDATE: March 8, 5:24 p.m. — Porzingis and Hardaway are available to play vs. the Pacers. Finney-Smith and Seth Curry remain out.

Dallas Mavericks PF/C Kristaps Porzingis is questionable to play in Sunday’s game vs. the Indiana Pacers due to knee soreness. The Mavericks are also dealing with injuries to Tim Hardaway Jr. and Dorian Finney-Smith, who both could be held out Sunday as well. Luka Doncic has missed time due to illness, but is good to go.

If Porzingis sits out, at $10,800, Doncic is a strong GPP play on the main slate. Maxi Kleber ($4,900) would also get a big boost in the front court. He’s been starting and playing a ton of minutes, so this would increase his usage and shots. If DFS and THJ remain out, Courtney Lee ($3,200) and Delon Wright ($4,500) will get some more run and are decent value options.
